Hello to All,
Yep. We birded in the rain. Can’t explain. Normal birder behavior. Afterward, Jennie S., Karin D., Marian N. and I celebrated Karin Cassel’s birthday at Svea, a Swedish restaurant on north Clark Street.
Then we ventured to Volo Bog in Lake County Illinois in search of the family of Sandhill Cranes that successfully nested in that vast preserve. Some birders saw a pair on Sandhill Cranes on the extensive grounds of Baxter Laboratories. But no cranes were seen or heard at Volo Bog.
